Full of grit, wit and dark humour, More Better Deals showcases Edgar award-winning author Joe Lansdale's brilliant writing and delivers another unputdownable thriller.

'A folklorist's eye for telling detail and a front-porch raconteur's sense of pace.'
New York Times Book Review

Ed Edwards works in the dirty, tough world of used car sales, but feels sure he is destined for more in life. Dreaming of a brighter future for himself and his plucky little sister, Ed wants to get out of the game.

And when Dave, his lazy, grease-stained boss, sends him to repossess a Cadillac, the better deal Ed has been searching for suddenly seems in reach.

The Cadillac in question belongs to Frank Craig and his beautiful wife, Nancy, owners of a local drive-in and pet cemetery. Ed knows Nancy well - too well. In the throes of their salacious affair, Nancy has suggested they kill Frank and claim his insurance policy. It is a tantalising offer: Ed can finally say goodbye to cars and maybe even send his sister to college.
But does he have what it takes to seal the deal?
